Traveling Scotland

Sunrise over Loch Lomond
Thanks to a visit from my brother and sister I had an excuse to go and explore some more of Scotland. After the, in the mean time almost obligatory, stay at the Oak Tree Inn we drove past Kilchurn Castle and Glencoe to the island of Mull. Here we stayed at a cottage in the middle of nowhere for a few days.

The secluded tranquillity of the location (and resulting reduced light pollution), together with two clear nights, gave an absolutely spectacular view of the stars and the milky way. The journey back included a detour via the Glenfinnan Viaduct and a stop for some tasty pub grub in Pitlochry. Unsurprisingly, my camera and tripod were along for the trip as well...
